Vice Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Senator Kashim Shettima, has said the nephew of President Muhammadu Buhari, Fatuhu Muhammad, has reversed his decision to dump the ruling party.
Shettima stated this on Tuesday via his Facebook page, adding that he had a meeting with the aggrieved lawmaker, whose father was Buhari’s oldest brother, at his Abuja residence on Monday evening, and Muhammad agreed to return to the party.
KEMI FILANI NEWS recalls that Fatuhu, a member representing Daura/Sandamu/Mai’adua Constituency at the House of Representatives, announced his defection from the APC over some irregularities in the leadership of the party in the zone.
Shettima said, “In our efforts towards peace building and uniting the members of our party, l met with Honourable Fatuhu Muhammed, who had previously announced his defection from our party. Hon. Fatuhu, who represents Daura/Sandamu/Mai’adua Federal Constituency of Katsina state, is a critical stakeholder of the APC in Katsina state.”
“After a crucial meeting this evening, Hon. Fatahu has rescinded his earlier decision to leave the party and also restated his commitment to work towards promoting the progressive ideals of our party, especially in this build-up to the elections.”
The former Borno State governor further stated that the Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Rt. Hon. Ahmed Idris Wase, and Hon. Nasiru Sani Zangon Daura, a member representing Zango/Baure Federal Constituency and candidate of the Katsina North Senatorial District in the 2023 elections, all attended the meeting.
